NewtsCape can save whatever current pages you are viewing as a Newton
Book as a newton book.

Since you already have a compatible ethernet card, you don't need the
serial adapter. You can install packages via personal web sharing also.

What you need is to access the card sharing program, one of the
hosts can send you a loaner card with necessary drivers and you are
ready to go. I would recommend using a subject line of 'Loaner Cards"
